1.) Three cards are drawn from an ordinary deck and not replaced. Find the probability of these: a) getting 3 jacks.

Solution: P(3 jacks) = 4/52 * 3/51 * 2/50 =1/5525

2.) Find the probability of getting 4 aces when 5 cards are drawn from an ordinary deck of cards.

Solution: P(4 aces) = 4C4 * 48 / 52C5 = 1*48/2,598,960 =1/54,145

If I reword the second problem, I could reword it as the following:

Five cards are drawn from an ordinary deck. Find the probability of these: a) getting 4 aces.

Wouldn't this make it the exact same as problem #1, meaning I could solve #2 the same way I solved #1?
